    How-to: Display Text Attachments in PO PDF

    Customers who attach many large text attachments to their purchase orders may find that the text attachment content does not appear in the purchase order PDF. To support text attachment content totaling over 4000 characters, customers can configure the data model and RTF to retrieve the text attachments directly from UCM. 

    The implementation broadly comprises of the following steps:
    1. Creating 2 datasets at each entity level
        a. The first dataset is to retrieve the document ID for the corresponding entity
        b. The second dataset is to retrieve the text attachment from the corresponding document ID
    2. Creating datalinks based on the corresponding entity ID and document ID
    3. Configuring RTF to concatenate text attachments, when multiple text attachments exist at a particular entity level

    Details can be found in the attached document.
